    Pros

    Motivated team of leaders who know what they're doing and have the drive and determination to succeed. An empathetic workplace that understands work life balance with leaders who genuinely care.

    Cons

    Change has been unsettling but inevitable with new leadership.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Flexible culture.

    Cons

    Recently we have hired quite a lot incompetent developers. Some persons who cannot even find any job in QLD for many years, they have been somehow hired as principal roles in our company. It turns out these newly hired persons are absolutely clueless about even very basic industry technologies nowadays. What they are good at is talking kinds of nonsense everyday. Incompetent hiring practices have made people here feel frustrated and sick. I believe this will eventually ruin the company.

    Cross-department collaboration doesn't seem to be a recognized issue by middle-level leadership.

    I have been working at MYOB full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - free local conference tickets - flexible work hours and good work-life balance - good facilities such as coffee machines, shower room, bike rooms, standup desks - allowed to study stuff.

    Cons

    - too much focus on buzz words but not productivity. any tech benefits in focus on training house-wives into software developers (DEVELOPHER program)? can't you see none of the candidates stay and become developers before launch another round of this? why fund start-ups? i guess it is for fame and someone's evidence to awards. - way too many non-tech mid managers. there are too many managers eating up salaries that are better spent on Developers' salary. managers with no tech experience, "leaders" who are promoted more because MYOB needs "gender balance" than their competence. Those leaders do nothing inspiring nor visionary to lead the team - changes in company tech road map and proposed company ownership changes cause confusion, panic and damages to morale. dozens of competent people left by the end of 2018. - too many incompetent people promoted and hired. - my team's salary way below market rate. it is described "a joke" by people outside the company, and people who left easily get big pay bump from their new companies. - CEO shoot himself in the foot. He was trying to show off on Twitter with subscription figures rather than increase of revenue or profit, and got smashed by competitor's marketing director into speechless. some people only realised by then that MYOB is being smashed into mud by competitors. - another major project designed to revive the company and beat competitor now faces massive delay/stuck under command of so called technical-leadership. it makes people realising that the company has been over the hill - too many technology fun boys have no better things to do other than trying out technologies that look good on their CVs, not what is the most suitable for tasks on hand. yet product managers and "leaders" have no problems with that?!

    Pros

    Innovation, collaboration and working with smart people in the greater Finance team. Great work-life balance. They’re truly passionate to make businesses succeed and to not only talk about - but also act - on gender imbalance. One of the very few companies I’ve ever worked for that puts their money where their mouths are.

    Cons

    HQ in Glen Waverley at present , but moving to the city fringe in 1.5 years so looking forward to less of a commute
